Please berespectful


Diversity of political opinion and the expression of opposing viewpoints are expected in a democracy.

In fact, we cherish such freedoms as our constitutional rights. 

Responsible citizenship, however, does not include the theft or defacement of property such as political signs. This has not really been a problem in Plainville over the years and it is certainly something which has never been encouraged or condoned by either the local Democratic or Republican party. But we are concerned about some recent issues with signs.

We therefore urge everyone to respect the right of community members to display political signs on their property. Be aware that theft or vandalism is illegal. Also, please share with others the importance of respecting others’ rights.

Emotions can run high as we approach Election Day. This year is certainly no different in that regard. Let’s all work together to ensure that the remainder of the 2020 campaign season reflects civility, safety and good citizenship. 

Rebecca Martinez, Plainville Democratic Town Committee, chairperson

Reelect Petit


State Representative Bill Petit has done a great job providing us, his constituents, with updates about COVID-19. Doc Petit’s medical background and knowledge are what we need in Hartford.

I am urging my fellow citizens to re-elect him as our representative for the 22nd District.

Dave Underwood

Backing Martin


Senator Henri Martin understands the needs of locally-owned small businesses. He has been a part of the Bristol business community for years and is the man to represent us in the 31st Senate District in Hartford. Please support Henri Martin’s re-election as our State Senator.

Jacob Rocco

Right for schools


State Senator Henri Martin has been a strong advocate for our public schools here in Plainville. We need a voice like Sen. Martin’s representing us in Hartford. That’s why I am voting to re-elect Henri Martin as our State Senator.

Danny Carrier

Sullivan for Congress


I am supporting David Sullivan to be our next United States Representative because he is for the rule of law, not the rule of the mob. That’s why Connecticut’s Fraternal Order of Police has endorsed his candidacy for Congress.

I am urging my fellow citizens to vote for David Sullivan for Congress.
